First, thanks for all the welcoming comments from everyone. I feel very welcome.
Second, I was wondering if anyone else had the same problem I had all day today. I'm sure many of you have, but it's driving me nuts.
I couldn't go to class today because my sugar was too high to be sitting up completely, much less driving a half an hour to school. I checked and bolused every hour, checked my ketones every time I used the bathroom and took a couple of regular shots according to my ketone amount. I got everything back down to normal, except my sugar. My ketones were negative, I changed my site three times, and I altogether didn't FEEL high anymore.
So, what's the deal? I just checked about an hour ago and my sugar was still in the 400s. I don't understand. I did everything I'm supposed to, I feel fine, and I have no ketones. How can my blood sugar still be so high?!
Earlier I was feeling low, and I thought, "yes! this is it! finally!" However, when I checked my blood sugar, it was 354. I didn't eat anything, I just layed down feeling low. I fell asleep and when I woke up I immediately felt shaky. That never happens to me. I could be 38 and I wouldn't feel like it until 15-20 minutes after I woke up. So, I checked again and I was 290. I decided to just eat something anyway. I was beginning to not trust my meter.
So I started using another one, and I'm STILL getting high readings. I don't know what to do anymore. I can't keep giving myself insulin or someone is going to have to use my glucagon, I'm afraid.
Anyone know what to do?
